Pumpkin Spice Breakfast Bars

health blogs pumpkin spice breakfast bar

I love using pumpkin spice in my baking. It’s blood-sugar balancing, soothing on the digestive system and a great natural sweetener. These bars are packed with good fats, antioxidants and protein to keep you glowing all morning! If you don’t have pumpkin spice you can use a combination of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger.
